The clip quint's story from Jaws (1975) with Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss
That's the U.S.S. Indianapolis.
You were on the lndianapolis?
Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into her side, Chief.
I was comin' back from the island of Tinian to Leyte just delivered the bomb. the Hiroshima bomb.
1.100 men went into the water.
Vessel went down in 12 minutes.
Didn't see the first shark for about half an hour.
Know how you know that when you're in the water?
You tell by lookin' from the dorsal to the tail.
Well, we didn't know.
Because our bomb mission had been so secret no distress signal had been sent.
They didn't even list us overdue for a week.
Very first light, sharks come cruisin' so we formed ourselves into tight groups.
Kinda like old squares in a battle like you see on a calendar like the Battle of Waterloo.
The idea was, the shark comes to the nearest man and he starts poundin' hollerin' and screamin'.
Sometimes the shark would go away but sometimes he wouldn't go away.
Sometimes that shark, he looks right into you right into your eyes.
You know, a thing about a shark, he's got lifeless eyes.
Black eyes, like a doll's eyes.
When he comes at you, he doesn't seem to be livin' until he bites you.
Those little black eyes roll over white and then then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'.
